A Local Quilt Show…

Our annual local Quilt Show happened several weekends ago now.

Here are some of the gorgeous quilts that were hanging in the Show.

There are alot of talented quilters and people in this area. I am

sure that you will agree after you have seen these pictures.

Star Quilt

I am unsure of many of the people who made these quilts. And

be forewarned, there are alot of pictures in this post.

16 Patch Quilt

The additions on the corners add some more interest to the

quilt.

These are some of the wallhangings in the Show. Yes, my camera

didn’t do a very good job here. I apologize but I am sure you get

the overall idea of the design.

Joan made this quilt that I finished for her last year. It

received lots of comments.

I still love the bubbles, or pebbles, and the matchsticks;  it adds

so much texture. And I love texture, although I don’t want to

quilt another one like this for a while.

I think this was considered a large wallhanging.

A Strip Quilt

I love the pinks in this quilt.

As I  mentioned before, a nice selection this year.

I do like the blocks in this quilt.

This looks like Northcott’s Stonehenge fabrics to me.

A Floral Quilt

How can you not like this one? Love the flowers and the colors.

dsc06670_2

Wow!! Look at all that piecing!

dsc06669_2

Love the modern fabrics in this one.

dsc06671_2

Doesn’t color affect the way you react to a quilt?

I love how the colored blocks go around the

quilt.

CArls’ Quilt

This quilt is rather interesting. Not sure of the name or

the designer.

SONY DSC

BArb’s Quilt

I love Batik fabrics.

Not quite sure of the block’s name that was used in this quilt.

dsc06679_2

More piecing. And curved at that.

SONY DSC

A bright quilt

Again, I am unsure of the name but I can’t imagine

all that piecing.

Anther dark photo. I am sure you get the idea though.

Tans and browns.

I do like this color scheme together.

dsc06683

A very traditional quilt. I think it has 1/2 log cabins

strips in it.

SONY DSC

A Sampler Quilt.

A Modern Garden Quilt.

This one intrigues me. What a great idea to use up some

of your blocks that are floating around.

Lynn’s Sock Monkey Quilt

dsc06688

Susan created this fun quilt from Lori Holt’s pattern

called “Cake Walk.” I keep telling Susan that she should

be designing because she uses a pattern but changes it

up to make it her own.

dsc06689_2

The border area was alot of fun, although it would have been

scary to watch me as I zoomed around each of the mice in the

border.

dsc06690

An example of one of her cakes. Notice the trim that was used

as icing. I couldn’t help but to keep smiling and laughing as I

quilted this quilt.

dsc06691_2

I am unsure if the designs on this quilt was totally embroidered.

Mary’s Quilt

dsc06693_2

The lady who created this quilt used alof of bias strips.

She mentioned that it took her quite a few years to

complete but it is stunning.

An Applique Quilt.

These are works of art to me.

A close up of the blocks in the quilt.

Hope you enjoyed all the pictures. I have

a few more for next week. Have a great week.
